LIFE’S JOURNEY

LIFE’S JOURNEY

 

 

We have to perform our multifarious functions in our lives. Axiomatically, it is not that we always meet with success in our endeavours. More often than not, we may have to weather many a storms while accomplishing tasks. Wise people just continue transacting their assigned tasks without let or hindrance. Failure at some point of time or other does not shake their resolve to continue still further. One failure is a stepping stone for these fellows to make still more efforts to fructify their efforts. Such people are the example, for others to follow.

 

Life is not a bed of roses always. Sometimes, we act but our actions are not as successful as ought to be. In other times, a little effort bears fruits for us. It is a travesty of face in our lives which should never be forgotten. It has also been seen that while we fail, we lose confidence altogether. People with strong determination do not lose heart, but make concerted efforts to catch up and with the grace of Almighty God come out unscathed.

 

It has also been experienced that some people just lose themselves while facing adverse results and go to the limit of committing the sin of self-destruction by adopting shortcuts of forgetting their worries by falling into the prey / trap of various addictions. These shortcuts to forget the worries just compound their worries. Such people ultimately end up losing their everything under the sun including their families, friend circle and other well-wishers still further. Losing our love ones, due to our faults means losing every hope to live tranquilly. For such people, JOURNEY OF LIFE just ends partly due to their internal conflicts and partly due to external factors beyond their control.

 

Following aspects need to be kept in mind while travelling the bumpy paths of our life’s JOURNEY ahead:-

 

  • End of Road is not the End of Journey. It should never be forgotten that one failure in life should not deter us to continue still further till we become successful ultimately.

 

  • Self-Realization. A self-realized person is the one who knows his / her stronger and weaker areas. That person dives deep / delves in his / her internal self and exploits the reservoir of huge energy dormant in their system. This sort of a person maintains equanimity in weal and woe.

 

  • Faith in our Creator. Whenever an adverse situation knocks our door, we ought to seek our Creator assistance. With right attitude and sincerity at our command, He will surely steer clear of boat. Also, faith in Him creates faith in ourselves.

 

  • Self-Discipline. A person who does not have discipline in his / her life just is not able to go ahead in the Journey of Life. That person curses his fate for every adversity that befalls him / her but never introspects that that situation is his / her own creation. Nobody should be held responsible for our state of affairs. Self-disciplined individual just passes the tests of time in his Journey ahead without any hurdles.

 

  • Challenges ought to be Challenged. We have the shining example of our young cricketer YUVI who defied / challenged even as debilitating disease as cancer with his personal resolve and confidence in himself and his Creator. On the other hands, if we just acquiesce to challenges that come in the journey of our lives, we just lose heart to go further and end our journey of life. Face the life with a Courage:

 

COURAGE

When people are falling like nine-pins around ye unsung

Muster courage to hold on till the last drop

For somebody is required to pick up the fallen pals.

 

When ye fathom you are right

But hard-boiled truth dawns, you are otherwise

Accept that truth with courage

And put your ‘right’ to tests

Thou not stand on ceremony

It will inevitably isolate you from the rests.

 

When encircled in the web of uncertainty

In us, a part of overall order of things

Have courage to accept to accept the good words

Of anybody betwixt

Embrace that rightly to free thee out of a fix.

 

Whilst travelling in unknown land

Finding your fellow being in tattered attire and in pain

Muster courage to know his state

Mitigate his suffering – if you can

If not, few kind words will cost though nothing.

 

O, Lord, shower thy blessings, we are in dire need

So that we are courageous to blot out

Disparity from humanity based on caste, colour and creed.

 

  • Life’s Journey is based on the Principle of Jointmanship. In our life’s journey ahead, we just whine that our of point of view has not been given credence. Imagine, are we accommodating others’ point of view? Our views are dearest to us while expecting much from others. Others needs and aspirations have no place in our scheme of things. It should never be forgotten that fastidious ones are isolated. Much of our differences in day to day lives; in our homes, amongst our peer group, society in general are due to this reason. If we want to make the journey of our life smooth, we shall have to be accommodative. It has to be a jointmanship venture. Hackneyed sermons have to be discarded.

 

With this intension in mind, I have written a poem titled LIFE’S JOURNEY, kindly go through. I solicit your comments because your points make indelible impact on me and motivate me to go on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

JOURNEY OF LIFE

 

 

Every one navigates the part of distance in life,

As apportioned by our CREATOR, 

Some fail to negotiate even an inch,

And merge with Him earlier than expected,

Some are stuck amidst pain plentiful,

Some exit without succour from any quarter,

Some lay a hand on margins and perish,

Some are left asunder by the whirlwinds of chance,

Some swayed by the unwieldy winds of time,

Time, which does not wait for mighty or light,

 

 

Some go in circles whole of their life span,

Confusion writ large on their faces with weary pain,

Remain back-pedaling from where started with little gain.

 

Lively are those who defy hurdles and act,

And overcome their tasks,

With a missionary zeal,

To strike the goal post of life,

With a bang in style.

 

 

Life befriend those,

Who do not stop the life’s journey,

When meeting with bumpy ride,

They dare take the bull of life by the horns,

And win the day with stumbling blocks galore,

They make the bumpy road blocks as their stepping stone,

And win laurels against all odds,

For a journey ahead –  acting here and now,

 

Life’ Journey covered yesterday,

Will add up today’s one,

And make difference in your journey ahead,

The one where you set your foot presently this moment,

Yesterday’s endeavours will add up in today’s actions,

And will benefit tide over tomorrow’s travels

And provide thee a giant stride ahead with pride.

IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS ALWAYS

IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS ALWAYS

Ignorance is the darkness which could be dispelled by the light of knowledge. Evolution is a natural phenomenon. From the very inception, individuals have evolved since stone- age partly through personal experiences and partly through gaining from experiences of the fellow beings.  This has not happened in isolation.

 

Change has to be accepted. Anything that becomes a law of the land has to be accepted as such. Those who accept these laws, are accepted in the society as law abiding citizens and those who transgress these are punished accordingly. Excuses of IGNORANCE of a particular law will not absolve the concerned person of the transgression and its culpability.

As civilization progresses, knowledge in various fields have also been evolved. From birth to various stages of our lives, we make concerted efforts to learn and dispel ignorance. The sources of knowledge are: family, peer groups, schools, colleges, universities and other formal Institutions.  Then there are informal institutions like temples, churches and other religious Institutions which also disseminate information and enhance our awareness pool and in the process remove our IGNORANCE on wide variety of subjects.

 

Ignorance of rules and regulations means, remain contravening these with impunity. It may be intentional many a times! The mores of good behaviour are essential in order to live in the society peacefully, respecting/accommodating the others’ viewpoints too. Ignorance of the rules hardly means our faults could be condoned.

 

NATURAL LAWS, like keeping our environs pollution free, planting more trees, up-keeping the green cover, keeping the air pollution to permissible level and restricting noise pollution et al. If we do not obey the natural laws and show our IGNORANCE, can MOTHER NATURE condone our faults? No, not all? You can escape the society’s laws but not breaking the Natural Laws. Her retribution would be severe. We are witnessing these in the forms of tsunamis, blizzards, earthquakes, etc with ferocity. No ignorance helps in breaking NATURAL LAWS.

 

With this intention in mind, I have penned down a poem, titled, IGNORANCE. Kindly appraise and offer your comments.

 

IGNORANCE

Mother Nature works with variety of golden rules,

Which, we humans are constrained to follow,

To the book without bias,

Come in Its path?

And become its ultimate prey,

In forms of tsunami, blizzards, et al,

No excuse of IGNORANCE can come as the solace.

 

Ignorance of the rules in the book of Laws of the Land,

If thou break by thy whim and caprice,

And when caught thee have to pay a heavy price,

Here again, ignorance of Law holds no defence,

No escape route accepted of not knowing rules,

Excuses offer no execution of natural justice,

 

O our Dearest Creator,

We beg for your succour,

Help eradicate the DARKNESS from our midst,

With Thy LIGHT,

So that we learn to respect Nature’s Laws,

And the Laws of the Land in which we live.

SELFISHNESS VERSUS SELFLESSNESS

SELFISHNESS VERSUS SELFLESSNESS

In life we come across people who know how their bread could better be buttered. They may even steal / borrow / forcibly take the butter from somebody else to put on their bread thus leaving the hapless owner hungry!
There are people who are bedevilled with excessive lust, greed and anger. These three negative traits come in the way of imbibing divine qualities like LOVE, TRUTH, GOODNESS et al. Nearness to these negative qualities takes us farthest from ULTIMATE TRUTH: GOD.
Whenever man is tempted to take something which legitimately is not his, it is called covetousness due to his selfish nature. He is carried away by his own impulses without caring for others. By doing so, he injures the society for his own wellbeing. In his views, his self-existence is more than the existence of others. A person with selfish motives always considers his interests uppermost and for getting those interests satisfied he would go all out, taking others’ lives even! Is this not happening every day? He transgresses codes of human behaviour, which regulates the behaviour of humans. No power of reason can transform his self-centred approach for aggrandisement of his desires. He is carried away by his own impulses and temptations without carrying for the society at large. In other words, it could be said that for getting his selfish ends fulfilled, that persons adopts all sorts of means / stratagems in his command.
In our daily lives, we are witness to selfishness vividly:-
• Family Members working at cross purposes to garner cheap points bordering on selfish motives browbeating others in the bargain.

• SOCIAL MEDIA working with the sole aim of enhancing TRP at any cost without thinking about the consequences of the scoops on the hapless victim if the story is incorrect.

• SOME PRESENT DAY CRICKETERS spoiling the gentlemen’s game by their greed not just bordering on selfishness but immorality; from any source!

• Some religious priests following baser selfish methods to earn name and fame for themselves, sometimes going against the teachings of religious philosophy.

Need of the hour is to quaff the nectar of selflessness from Divine cup. Selflessness qualities which are good for self and for the society at large are to be adopted in our daily lives. Efforts should also be made to shun demon like, baser selfish qualities. It is the conscience which should be made responsible to be on the guard for maintaining and imbibing selfless attitudes for our personal gain spiritually.
SELFLESSNESS
A class beyond others,
Whose reflection in the mirror of life,
Exhibit vividly classy clear image,
Without blur or blot,
With ease, we grasp their selflessness,
Deeply ingrained in them is greatness in immense measure,
They mix with the surrounding so easily,
That even the sturdy bestow them their coveted place,
Will jump to action when his men need – without demur,
Ever full of verve and dynamism,
To lead the battle of life from front,
Selflessness is the service they render for others,
Without exception without expectation,
Not by exertion of pressure at command,
But by gentle persuasion,
Service with a smile with nil expectation,
They are responsible for critical work of the day,
Together with his men they accomplish the job at hand,
Use heart and soul to lead their mind,
Selfless feel the people’s pulse fully,
What they actually need the most,
They take credit or discredit,
What their men do or not do,
They are where the action is,
Not at a place where rewards are disbursed,
Listen to what your men want from them,
Not what you require from them,
Those who work for us deserve our the best,
Heart and soul put together helps to lead from the front,
Being selfless is hardest task, tough call,
Never say die for anything under the sun,

Weaklings are the faint in heats,
Selfish spurn challenges,
Wanting reward for doing little,
Deception is their hallmark,
To take credits for others laurels,
Without accepting any blame for wrong doing,

A PRESSURE COOKER EXISTENCE

A PRESSURE COOKER EXISTENCE

 

Even the pressure cooker, we use in our homes releases pressure, when extra pressure is built in it, but we tend not to de-pressure our system. The rat rate just continues nonetheless. All the built in pressures remain dormant in our body, in the bargain, we are awarded with various debilitating ailments with disastrous implications.

 

In our daily lives, there are so many pulls and pressures. Some of these pressures are created by our high EXPECTATIONS. Others are due to the environments in which we live. In both these cases, how we can come out unscathed, depends solely on us. More often than not, we have been taken in / influenced by the outer glitter of the world at large. We too want to be a part of that glitter (demonstrative effect) and try fructifying those forgetting our own self, our latent strengths and weaknesses. We do not reckon our present financial position, responsibilities / duties that we have towards our families and other related functions which are entrusted to us.

 

The DEMONSTRATIVE EFFECT, being as it is, we tend to compare our status with others and want to reach to that status anyhow. In the first place, we try to reach that Al Dorado by putting severe pressure on ourselves by working round the clock even without consideration that our body requires some rest for rejuvenation. The physical and mental strains thus generated, lead to various diseases like hypertension / high blood pressure, becoming obese and pressure related diseases due to less movement, and finally our immune system goes bust. Then there is always a likelihood of adverse effects on our mental state when we fail to pass the litmus test of status acquisition, our concerted efforts notwithstanding. We earn various diseases like depression and others psychological ailments due to not meeting our expectations that we have set for ourselves.

 

Another way of fulfilling the ‘demonstrative effect’ is by adopting ulterior methods, not legitimate ones / furtively pursued, become prey to fear psychosis of being caught in the act. This hideous fear too leads to the similar adverse results to physical and mental affects.

 

If the individual concerned is caught by the law enforcing agencies, that individual will have to face unpredictable future putting at naught all the furtive acts and also name and fame in the process. Many a lives and families have been ruined due to these tendencies.

 

          It has also been seen that Work Place and Home are responsible for creating PRESURE in a big way.  

 

  • Pressure at Work Place. In the work place people are assigned various tasks as per the charter of duties. These tasks are to be done in time bound manner putting extra pressure. If the targets assigned are not met, the concerned persons are likely to be severely reprimanded, may face demotions or their increment stopped resulting in increased pressure.

 

  • Pressure at Home. Pressure built in work place gets into the system of the person concerned and may explode at home when home based pressures also mount.

 

Implications of pressure cooker existence are:-

 

  • Adverse effect on both body and mind.
  • Family fabric is impacted.
  • Official functioning adversely affected.
  • Social life disturbed.
  • No forward march in spirituality through Self Realization.

 

If we continue leading a mechanical life by leading a Pressure Cooker existence, and do not CHANGEwhen CHANGE is woefully needed then sure enough, Mother Nature  will CHANGE us for the worse.

 

With this intention in mind, I have peened down a poem entitled CHANGE. Kindly go through and comment. I solicit your comments since these spur me to write more.

 

 

CHANGE

 

Whilst the lot around is ominous and dark,

Trust one day, brightness will dawn.

 

Every unexciting autumn changes into enchanting spring,

And every dark cloud has thin snow-white coating.

 

Wishy-washy life will give place to hope,

And blooming life, hopefully, will come hopping

Infusing verve and vitality in every being.

 

Change that brings misery in its wake ,

Tests our will power and what it takes,

To live to tell the tale.

 

Spiritual Change brings one near to Almighty God,

Negative mind-set negates everything possessed,

And may deprive a person of his sanity,

Resulting in loss of face and self-purity,

Ageing brings changes since egg in womb once gets fertile,

Passing the added stages of life,

Transiting through ups and downs of time,

And to the end by leaving the body inert.

 

And wait for better days for a change,

Change in the river course due to nature’s fury,

Takes away the land with all its fertility,

Changing the geographical limit of a place,

And with it, the history attached with its virulent current,

To bottomless confines of an ocean.

Anger – A DRAG ON OUR INNER ENERGY

                                         ANGER – A DRAG ON OUR INNER ENERGY

 

            It is our common knowledge that we ourselves can make or mar our lives. We can earn self esteem by exhibiting good traits in the society in which we are living or otherwise be in the eye of a storm. Choice remains with us. Nobody other than us is responsible for out doing and undoing.

           It has also been observed how our youth is angered in schools, colleges and other educational institutions on silly pretext. Whenever they feel ‘let down they do not adopt ‘let go’ attitude.  his is happening and we are he silent spectators. Dismayed though. The end result, we are witnessing; the killing sprees by the students in our schools / colleges on silly excuse – a excuse which could be forgotten being of no consequence. And why this is happening? It is happening because we are not devoting our quality time and resources to nurture our children to remain calm when under provocation. More often than not, it has been seen that the parents are partly at blame because they did not stop their children when they observed their children doing one negative act. They just glossed over. They just let it happen and thus it had indelible impression on the child’s psyche and thus playing havoc now.

               Qualities of tolerance, patience, forgetting and forgiving are to be given to our youth both in the formal institutions and at home too. Evil of anger has to be nipped in the bud itself. Otherwise, the consequence we are witnessing will take hydra headed snake’s dimension thus engulfing not only the doers but the hapless bystanders too. 

             It is never one way traffic. If you show anger even on an occurrence which could just be forgotten with ‘let go’ attitude, is made to be ‘let in’ attitude by temper flaring up; the consequences of which could be disastrous. It will not only tell badly on our internal body system but also, in the process, you have added one more ‘dislike’ in the list you have earned over a period of time. This just goes on, if checks and balance audit is not done regularly on our anger. The result of anger cannot be LOVE, it will be generation of more anger only.

              Anger too is bad in our forward march for self realization. With anger looming large, we cannot   focus our attention on anything under the sun. May it be your studies for acquiring knowledge, forward march in the spiritual awakening, for you will never be focused inwardly being pre-occupied by your senses and its appeasement! For Inner Knowledge of our own selves, it is of prime importance that we remain positive oriented, removing the garbage of anger away from our being, remain at peace with ourselves and with the environs in which we are living, take care that we never are swayed by outer attacks on ourselves.

 

             Our inner defensive shield should be such that it should offensively protect us from outer bad influences. That missile shield of defence can make us immune to  missiles in the form of anger, rencour, jealousy- by obliterating these when these attack us.

        Anger will also prove be a drag on our Inner Energy Reservoir, of which exploration can only be done with concentration, better connectivity with our outer and inner self.

        With the intention in mind, I have penned down a poem, highlighting the consequences of anger.

 

      Kindly critically comment. I get inspiration and motivation to write through your critique.

 

 

ANGER

When thy perceptions go awry,

Doubt persists for every doubtless thing,

our mathematics goes in disarray,

We add two plus two as three,

Our rationality takes backseat,

Mind receptors get beating,

Sugar tastes vinegar,

Vinegar itself loses its flavour,

Thy taste-buds turn insipid,

When thyself remain no thyself,

You smell rat in every deal,

The bountiful fragrance gives,

Repulsive odour in rage.

 

Thy touch becomes even more awry,

Meda’s touch impedes,

Flawed feelings perceive,

Soft feelings for others turn,

Barbed and spiky.

 

Hearing becomes frigid,

Fascinating music loses its charm,

Ye think it will do more harm,

Anger takes away the music of life,

From our midst, whilst in anger.

If thee aspire to live a Balanced life,

Shun the anger that robs you

From yourself,

And puts you in somebody else’s clothing.

CORRUPTION

CORRUPTION

 

Corruption has obviously taken a toll on our society. If we term it a slow poison, it will not be a wrong thing. Everybody wants to be materially prosperous. Some adopt short route, in the process,  just hoodwinking the rules and regulations in vogue.

 

          We do not get good candidates to represent us because there is often a sale and purchase of candidates while choosing them, though with some exception. Those with power and pelf get upper hand. Candidates who actually have ability in real sense of terms get booted out initially itself and the ones with influence in plenty with plentiful money just get voted in. What can we expect from the ones who have come to represent us by purchasing their tickets? Well, it is not a rocket science not to be understood. Then when corruption takes a hydra headed snake form, we blame others. We ourselves had chosen those who are representing us then how others are responsible for it all!

 

In the offices, general people have to grease the palms of the person(s) concerned for getting their jobs done. For instance, even in tender bidding, rules and regulations are given a sweetest good bye.  Those with influence at the right places get their bids passed with even less competency for acquiring the same.

 

Various scams which are coming to light now have taken the corruption and the corrupt practices to another dimension.  

 

Even the religious places too are not immune to it. People at the helm furtively syphon off the offerings for their own use.

 

I am of the opinion that some fear of our CREATOR is created that the money created through illegal and corrupt practices, if used for upbringing of the children, will have ill effects on their growth and development. And this is so? Then I think some wise thinking may dawn and the corruption may decline.

 

Or let the law of the land made stringent and practical that those who resort to corrupt practices, are made to face consequences for their acts, then also something tangible could be expected.

 

We ourselves have to introspect that how this menace of  corruption has to be bridled lest it eats the very edifice on which our society rests.

 

With this intension in mind, I have penned down a poem titled CORRUPTION. Kindly appraise and comment for I love comments.

 

 

CORRUPTION

 

Hovering on the horizon of seventh-cloud,

May be, bereft of worldly wisdom!

But abundance in dramatic power and pelf,

Gets ready in getting things done with clout,

Anyhow and anyway,

Question not how and why,

Greasing palms liberally,

In the process leaving sticky grease on the palms,

Of both giver (corrupt) and taker (corruptible) equally.

 

Corruption starts from choosing candidate for election,

Who, with bags brimming with mullah,

Reaches out to purchase the ticket,

Disabling candidates with ability by this act,

During electioneering money falls like

flacks of wintery snow,

And his Money Distribution System works wonders,

Sale and purchase of votes just goes on unchecked,

Finally the fellow is elected to represent people,

To whom he knows not,

And thinks, what need to know the poor lots,

Then he starts earning back he had spent,

This goes on and on without a limit.

 

In the offices rules and regulations are just a passé,

Books on rules decorate the library selves aplenty,

Files move on if more weight is put on these,

Saying good bye to vague rules in vogue,

Work made easy with money paid easily,

To sort out knotty matters with ease,

What a difference the corrupt practices make.

 

In giving employment reliance on favouritism is preferred norm,

Ability is dug deep construed as a normal one.

 

 

Tender bidding for any sale and purchase,

Becomes opaque when nothing is known why,

Transparent procedures just not deliberated here too,

A better one rejected and one with ‘weighty thing’ attached just gets passed.

 

Corruptly obtained capital then takes the invisible wings,

Unaccounted cash collected just finds its final destination,

Thus giving a double punch to economy and the country at large.

 

 

O My Lord, Come to our rescue,

Give some sagacity to the corrupts,

So that this malaise does not eat our structure in which we live.

Aside

Relationship:

 

Importantly, essential prerequisites of a relationship is how best we can correlate / adjust with our fellow beings with change  of internal and external situations. For this to happen in a smooth manner, we have to look into ourselves and ask what do we except from our fellow partner. Are our expectations falling within the purview of possibility? Or are these expectations asking for a ‘moon’? Do these expectations pass litmus test posed by creeping change(s) due to unforeseen situations / changed scenario; which we least expected but have crept in, anyhow?

 

Relation of spouses is predominantly based on the principle of give and take. It cannot be established in isolation – it is a two way traffic. Both have to work in tandem / cooperation so that the family fabric is not loosened. If some untoward situation comes, it has to be sorted out/attended to, then and there. Otherwise, the petty matter may snowball into ruination of an established relationship. If something goes wrong, it will have adverse implications not only on couples concerned but also their offspring, who are anyhow dependent upon them. It should always be kept in mind that both the spouses should not sleep over a pestering wound lest that wound may become cancerous/ have ruinous effect on the family as a whole. Many a lives have been ruined when small matters, not taken care on time have spiralled out of control with disastrous consequences.

 

          Secondly, in the joint family system, we have to respect the sensibilities of each members. In this, parents, grand-parents and sometimes brothers and sisters too may be part of the unit.  It should also be kept in mind that temperament of each being different, care have to be exercised that each one’s needs are attended to, each one’s self respect protected besides edifice / principles on which the joint family works have to be respected. Here the small ones and old ones are to be bestowed with special care and protection. Here jointmanship code works better.

 

          In the workplace, we have to be formal in our dealings with others. Due respect to our seniors and respecting the sensitivities of juniors have to be the binding factor for the official work to be transacted in right earnest and in a systematic manner. Sometimes, some emergent needs may call for our undivided attention to assigned task(s) in hand. The assigned targets have to be religiously met. Otherwise, there may be differences in the office. Here too, there are the people, like in the family, who have to be guided or sometimes goaded to go ahead and show performance. Rewards for the go-getters and sometimes punishment for the truants (if persuasion fails) have to be a norm.  But humane touch by the management should never be lost sight of.

 

Then, more important than anything else is your moral high ground, which you espoused for quite sometimes, coming in the way of your relationship?  Or other times, your physical endurance may come in the way of holding on to the relationship. This is so when one is old, when he / she has little to show by way of independent opinion. That is the time when the offspring time comes for repayment.

 

 

          Finally, the relationship that we have cultivated with our CREATOR is one of the basic factors, important for our SELF REALIZATION. If we are self realized ones, we shall be able to exhibit sufficient patience, tolerance, equanimity both in pleasure and pain and thus be immune to internal and external pulls and pressures. A self realized one will not have negativities like ego, greed, anger, ill-will and all the ill-conceived notions for others too. That person being near to our LORD, can never be led astray by anything under the sun.      

 

         

With this intention in view, I have penned down a poem titled, RELATIONSHIP. Kindly go through and comment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

RELATIONSHIP

 

Our connection with our Creative Lord,

Indeed defies logic,

He showers His love,

Whether thee reciprocate it or not,

Makes difference naught,

Provides with His bounties to one and all,

And if thou reciprocate His love with prayer and good deeds,

He cleanses thy misdeeds (nishkarma),

And gives a permanent abode,

In His warmest heart for all times to come (Moksha).

Relationship that we enjoy with our parents,

Too is too close to make mention in words,

Due to them we open our eyes & see this enchanting world,

Due to them we enjoy the bounties of Mother Nature.

Mother tends us in her womb till birth,

Suffering pangs without even a demur,

And after birth that you become worth,

She gives her everything she held dear,

So that you earn name and fame in future.

Relationship of husband and wife ought to be on rock solid base,

Bumps on the road in life are to be jumped over with ease,

Lest these bumps take a tardy turn for the worst,

A relation based on concrete connectivity has concrete life span,

And can hold-up any blitz from enemy within between the two,

Creeping differences ought to be nipped in the bud with mutual agreement.

With equal respect to each at stake,

Sliding other can slide the train of relationship,

And not kept simmering till becoming uncontrollable,

Attend the hair-line-crack from becoming a hole gaping,

A soft but firm hug can debug bugging relation,

And make serviceable the bad connection.

Then bad-mouthing by the duo,

And standing on formal ceremony by the two,

Can have an unkind end result,

And put a final peg on the casket,

Of relationship that exists.

Consider, nobody has ever won argument,

For a win-win situation keep your head clear,

And sometimes agree to disagree in a soft manner,

To iron out differences if those bedevil ever

Here ‘Time’ will certainly be thy rescuer.

Forget not winking each other to make the life bit a silky route,

But not hoodwinking and make it a slippery road to nowhere.

Self conscious but not unconscious of the emotions of other,

Creeping problems not to be slept over,

Lest these spin out of control,

And embitter the sweet relation.
